I've seen this car parked on state highway 395 past Pearsonville, CA for several years. Sunday I was heading home from camping in the Panamint Valley and stopped for a photo.

Not sure of the year.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained, knock on the door and ask if it's for sale!

Phillip,

It's a slant windshield with side-lights!

Could be interesting find if that's how it was built in the beginning! Do stop next time....it might be a late model car non-improved with stem-winder only ignition!

I spoke to the owner two years ago and it was for sale. Asking price then was $15,000. Who knows, maybe the asking price has become more realistic since we last spoke.

You might be right Jerry, I was thinking those are Large drums on the rear end. Then of course there's the slant windshield. But then you've been at this longer then me so I'll yield to the expert in this case.

I see what you're thinking though, that radiator cover looks pretty darn black. Hmmmmm.

Ok this is my last official guess, Late '25.

Balloon tires, large rear drums, slanted windshield, early fenders, my bets are on it being a 1925. What my question is, if it is a non-electric car because of the side lights, are the headlights magneto? Hap a little help here, please.

Yes, if a true non electric car the headlights would be magneto.

Forgot to mention it's behind a chain link fence with "No Trespassing" sign attached.

Plenty of electric Model T's have had cowl lamps attached, just because their owners felt that they made the car "look more like a Model T."

I've got a question; the larger improved brake drums were announced on the "new improved Fords" on August 26th 1925 and the 1926 models started July 27th 1925 and "if" in fact this car came from Ford with the larger brake drums, then wouldn't this car have been 1926 or newer? The encyclopedia also states that the nickel radiator shell was offered as an option on open cars and it was standard on the closed cars. The high style radiator started late in 1923 and continued through the end of the Model T. The issue I'm having with this car is; it appears the body might have a 5 PC back as opposed to a three piece as provided starting in 1922. It almost appears to have an extra seam on the side of the bode behind the rear door. How do ya'll see my observations?

Phillip,
Why don't you buy that. Then you would you would have a T that will haul more than two people. I take that old junky couplet off your hands. :-)
